Introduction


Getting older is a fact of life. Some people age better, while some are lucky enough to look younger. For many people, the younger they look, the better they feel about themselves. But age is an unstoppable process and, as the body ages, so does the skin and its appearance and characteristics change.
Age, hormones, sun exposure, smoking all have a part to play, causing fine lines, wrinkles and unwanted textural changes like enlarged pores. Skin feels more fragile and less elastic. As our age increases, the hyaluronic acid content of our skin – which is important for water retention – decreases.   

The oil-producing sebaceous glands become less active and your skin becomes drier. The skin also loses fat, so it looks less plump and smooth and it also loses its youthful colour and glow. While all these changes are taking place, gravity is also at work, pulling at the skin, causing it to sag.

What are Dermla Fillers?


These clever products are designed to plump up static wrinkles and lines in your skin, softening them and giving a more smooth and youthful look.

Dermal fillers can also be used for non-surgical facial enhancement, including:

  • lip enhancement,
  • cheek enhancement
  • nose reshaping
  • chin enhancement
  • brow shaping/lifting
  • non-surgical facelift
  • non-surgical jowl reduction

The products we use here Vanity Aesthetics  are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally produced in the skin that is essential for keeping it looking plump, smooth and youthful.

JUVÉDERM® is a filler made by Allergan and is a smooth consistency gel which is injected to restore volume, fill lines, wrinkles and folds and redefine lips. Unlike other fillers, JUVÉDERM® is not granular which means that it is able to flow easily into the skin, giving a smooth, natural appearance.
